This was our second trip to Williamsburg in as many years. We were joined by friends from Washington state, who are seafood fans. Each of us had something different and it was all wonderful! I had the seafood trio with potato bacon hash, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Another of us had raw and prepared oysters and gobbled them up! We... More

We ate out on the patio listening to music which was pleasant. We had oysters which were good and reasonable as they were the special, the pulled pork and crab trio were also good. The waitress however shorted us $10 and when brought to her attention she didn't even bother to count our change which suggests it was intentional. Always... More

This restaurant was a little disappointing to our party of 6. The food was very expensive and just ok. One person at our table ordered wine and it had turned like they served if from a bottle opened days ago. They insisted they didn't but it was tasted by others at the table and obviously not fresh. I had the... More

One of the worst places we have eaten and we have been all over the U.S. They told us 20 minutes and finally after checking back we decided to leave after 60 minutes. They suddenly had a table and we waited another 20 minutes. The seafood is very old and fishy tasting. I had the crab cakes and they were... More

My family and I visited this restaurant June 7th. We had heard some good reviews so we wanted to check it out. We had reservations for the dinning room. We arrived early and was taken immediately. The staff was very pleasant, however I didn't really feel welcomed. Our server came over and took our drink orders and was not sure... More

Found this place the other night. We sat on the patio next to the kitchen. A constant pungent smell came from the kitchen. My beer was hot. I had the crab cake sandwich. Let's just say I'm glad it didn't make me sick. My wife ordered the fried shrimp and they were mediocre. I also had the she crab soup... More

We remembered this restaurant from our visit to Williamsburg 14 years ago! It did not disappoint this time either. The crab dip appetizer was very good served with excellent pita bread. I had the bacon wrapped trout that was so outstanding and so flavorful. The wait staff was also exceptional. Within walking distance to the Colonial Williamsburg attractions and honestly... More
